With winterapproaching, many struggle to find exercise practices that still allow them toget outside, despite the cold. Diet isimportant this time of year with holiday gatherings and treats, but just asimportant is physical activity. If aperson prefers outdoor physical exercise to membership in a gym, here are someactivities to try to keep up exercise habits despite the snow and cold.
Sledding is not only afun activity, but a physically engaging one as well. It’s estimated that just over an hour oftobogganing can help burn off a few bites of truffles or other goodies one mayhave indulged in. Along the same lines,cross-country skiing and snowboarding have numerous physical benefits as wellas social ones. Expertise is not neededto engage; just a few pieces of equipment (which can sometimes be rented) and asense of adventure and this activity will burn off numerous treats that wereenjoyed during a party.
Another socialactivity that is fun for all ages is ice skating. Dress warmly for the chill in the air, andglide around the rink with friends is great for toning the whole body throughbalance exercises, and getting the heart rate pumping through the large movementsneeded to propel the body around the rink.
Winter also doesn’thave to stop a jogging habit. Withproper footwear and clothing, jogging can still take place despite the cold andsnow outside. An alternative to joggingis snowshoeing, which is also an excellent opportunity for social engagement aswell as physical activity.
These are just a fewwinter wonderland physical activities one can take part in to stay fit andhealthy through the winter months. Askfriends to join in, and everyone will reap the benefits of more exercisethroughout the holiday season with improved moods, and smaller waistlines.
